1053: Win2k Servr fail to start servicesLocked
I have a Windows2000 server with service pack 3.
The problem is now server is not starting any services which is already ‘Manual’ or ‘Disabled’.
When i try to make the services automatic , the console is hanging. But if want to start any serice manully, it will try to load and give an error message
“Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion”.
I tied to install service pack 4 to solve the issue. But unfortunately Windows installer service is somehow selected as manual. so that is also possible. I tried restarting the server couple of times. Whatever services are selected as automatic is starting at startup without any problems.
Now i am not able to install any programs in the server coz installer service is down.
I will be very gratefull if anybody can help me to solve this issue.
